Insight: The Rapture / Overweight Pets / Roy Blount Jr. / One Eyed Rhyno


The Rapture What's behind some people's obsession with end times? One evangelical group in America believes the Rapture will happen this weekend. Today on Insight, we'll talk about it with UC Davis religious studies professor Allison Coudert.

Overweight Pets According to recent studies and observation, at least half of all dogs and cats in this country are overweight because their owners feed them too much, putting them at risk of joint pain, back pain, arthritis, kidney disease, diabetes, etc. We'll talk with Jennifer Larsen, Associate Veterinarian Doctor and Nutritionist at UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, about pet nutrition. You'll also meet Marjorie Stambaugh, whose dog was able to lose weight with help from Larsen.

Roy Blount Jr. Humorist, sportswriter, poet, performer, lecturer, dramatist and screenplay writer Roy Blount Jr. will be in conversation Tuesday, May 24th with author Sands Hall at California Lectures.

Roy Blount Jr. in Conversation with Sands Hall at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 24th at the Tsakopoulos Galleria, 828 I St., Sacramento. Information: (916) 737-1300.
